The OLYMPUS OM-D series began in March 2012 with the OLYMPUS OM-D EM5, with the goal of providing a series that meets existing DSLR user needs. The OM-D’s excellent design, mobility, and system performance received high praise and support from many camera fans for its ability to fully make use of interchangeable lenses even under difficult shooting conditions, and truly perform with viewfinder photography.

The new OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 is the flagship OM-D model, with even greater image quality and support for both Contrast AF and On-chip Phase Detection AF. These features draw out both the Four Thirds System standard and Micro Four Thirds System standard
conformity of the lens to its maximum level.

The newly-developed Live MOS sensor supports Phase Detection AF on the imaging surface. In combination with the newly developed TruePic VII image processor, the camera
reduces noise even further at high-sensitivities, and provides excellent image quality with
improved reproducibility. Additionally, the newly-developed DUAL FAST AF is also
included with optimal selection of Contrast AF and On-chip Phase Detection AF.

These enable not only to use the expanded lineup of Micro Four Thirds high-performance fixed-focal length lenses, but also to support comfortable use of Four Thirds lenses with excellent depictive power. By polishing the three elements of image quality (lens, imaging sensor, and image processor), the absolute best image quality in Olympus’s top class DSLR series is achieved.

The built-in EVF, which is indispensable for the compact, high-performance DSLR style that can only be found on an OM-D, features a 0.74x magnification factor (35mm conversion), and a high-resolution 2.36 million dot LCD panel. The automatically adjusted
backlight control function provides a view so natural that it will make users think they are
looking through an optical viewfinder, and expands the possibilities of EVF performance
with the new Color Creator function. The in-body 5-axis image stabilization compensates
for shutter speed by 4 steps offering improved image stabilization at lower shutter speeds.

The E-M1 surpasses the E-5 in dustproof and splashproof performance, and now boasts low-temperature tolerance with operations guaranteed down to -10, for a high level of reliability appropriate to a flagship model.

The OLYMPUS OM-D E-M1 is the successor model to our professional DSLR E-5, and at
the same time it is the new flagship model of our mirrorless system cameras. Full-featured functions drive the rich lens line-up in all directions along with the best in reliability, and compact, lightweight form for the culmination of Olympus efforts.

  1. “Pro lens should come with a hood” – LOL – my E-510, E-620 two kit lenses had free hoods, the 25mm DSLR lens did not have a hood because it is a pancake, the 75mm mft lens is expensive but has no free hood. Olympus stopped giving free hoods easily when they went MFT
